If you want to win an election, yelling about global warming and blaming air conditioners, cars, plastic straws, and jets -- while jetting in to do it -- is probably not the best way to sell it to voters. So to the surprise of no one except the far leftists hollering about it, the Democratic Party's leadership has decided to cancel a proposed presidential nomination debate on climate change, enraging the party's extremists: "This decision is as baffling as it is alarming. Our planet is burning— the least we can do as a party is debate what to do about it," [candidate Beto] O'Rourke said on Twitter

Yep. And their draconian, lunatic, obviously destructive "solutions" are not going to be popular, either.

Maybe the 9 category 3 or higher hurricanes about to strike the US mainland (according to a recent NY Post headline) will get this important issue back on the table.

Even the most fanatical climate change believers don't want to change their lifestyles to 'save the planet'. The whole issue is just a political talking point.

Their dilemma is that they need lots of "deplorable" people who go to work and pay bills to vote for them. They disregard them, despise them and think them idiots....but every four years they have to pretend they are all on the same team.

You better believe that after the leftist and liberal Democrat Nominee is chosen and during the run up to the general election, that the Nominee himself or herself, the Democrats, and their media allies will be fraudulently claiming that the Nominee, whoever that person turns out to be, even if the Democrats commit political suicide by nominating a Democrat socialist, is more conservative than President Trump.

I dunno about this. Everywhere I looked this last week there was an article or news item about the catastrophic effects of global warming. Must have seen five items about the 'last glacier in Iceland' this week. Warmest July on record. If it flopped, it flopped. But they were giving it the college try.

The National Geographic is a great bargain. Beautiful glossy photos on paper made in and polluting northern New Hampshire for years. I buy it for my office, very inexpensive, but it is rarely read, other than by myself. So, I have 40 years of stacks of N. G. I notice that for past several years, you can rarely read a paragraph before hearing about man made climate change. This month, it has practically melted Greenland. Local letters to editor suspect that Trump is trying to buy it to cover up the crime. No wonder people are preferring animated cartoon movies for entertainment.

Shh Beto! Didn't you take Dem Strategy 101? We can't talk about our intended policies before an election. We have to wait until we win enough power and then crow that we have a mandate to do the things we never talked about during the campaign. Don't worry, when the time is ripe, we'll ram the Green Weinie down the Deplorable Unredeemable Clingers' throats!

In the referenced video, Varney says he is "surprised" that voters aren't more responsive to Climate Change issues. With all the reporting on extreme weather, he expected voters to react. But here's the rub. While the media is actually doing part of its job and reporting on events, they aren't putting them in context. Yes, extreme weather can be scary. But weather, up to a few years ago, was deemed boring. So only the most extreme weather got coverage. Then the Climate Alarmists declared that they were losing the battle of media. The Leftist media responded with almost nightly reports on extreme weather. However, they leave out the context that weather events they are now covering are pretty typical. In fact, there are somewhat LESS extreme events than usual. That doesn't play well into the Alarmist narrative so they conveniently leave it out. There is another inconvenient fact. When you bombard people with negatives, over time, they become desensitized to it. They begin to perceive it as "normal", which, in this case, it actually is. When twister after twister hits every tornado season people begin to realize that this is the norm of tornado season. The same with hurricanes, blizzards, severe thunderstorms, floods, etc.. Sure every now and then a true outlier pops up, a really destructive flood for example. That doesn't confirm the Alarmists claims. The trends are mostly stable or lowering. That's why voters are yawning. Algore making a movie doesn't make it true. In fact, it's probably not.

Five people were fatally shot in a 24-hour period throughout Brooklyn and Queens — and the gunmen in each case are still at large, police said Wednesday. The bloodshed began early Tuesday, when 18-year-old Angel Nixon was fatally shot in the head, torso and legs around 12:30 a.m., when a fight broke out near the corner of 176th Street and 145th Avenue in Springfield Gardens, police said. Later in the evening, Queens cops found Gregory Haskins, 25, lying on the pavement with a gunshot wound to the chest on Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica, according to police sources.

The convicted pedophile, who was 6 feet tall, apparently killed himself by kneeling toward the floor and strangling himself with the makeshift noose, law enforcement sources said Monday. He hadn’t been checked on for several hours, sources said. Epstein was “unresponsive” when he was discovered in his cell at the Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center at around 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, the federal Bureau of Prisons has said.

The New York Department of Financial Services is investigating the National Rifle Association for its role in offering now-banned insurance products for gun owners in the state — and earning at least $14 million in the process, The Post has learned. The investigation, which hasn’t been previously reported, is an outgrowth of consent agreements last year with insurance companies, ending the sale of NRA-branded Carry Guard insurance, and other similar products, in New York, sources said. Carry Guard insurance provided gun owners as much as $150,000 for their legal bills if they were arrested for a shooting and claimed it was done in self-defense. New York state

Over the weekend, America suffered two mass shootings within hours of one another, in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. These followed another mass shooting in Gilroy, Calif., a week earlier. The alleged perpetrators of the attacks were young, “lone-wolf” gunmen. All three carried out carnage against innocents using high-power rifles. All told, Santino ­Legan (Gilroy), Patrick Crusius (El Paso) and Connor Betts (Dayton) killed 34 people and injured dozens more. While the attacks are similar, the response from liberals and leftists has been anything but.
